By: | November 16, 2021

As organisations continue to develop their strategies in building their future organisation, CHROs are expected to take the lead in driving organisational success.

To find out how CHROs can achieve this as the roles they play continue to evolve, be sure not to miss CHRO Malaysia on November 18, as some of Asia’s most prominent and experienced HR leaders meet to discuss the most critical initiatives and issues impacting CHROs today.

Kicking off CHRO Malaysia – supported by ADP and Abbot – is Jason Averbook, Global Keynote Speaker, and CEO & Co-Founder, Leapgen, who will be discussing leaders can stop implementing technology and start deploying human capabilities, and how the workplace experience can be designed with people at the centre.

He will then participate in a panel discussion titled, Adapting to The Work and The Workforce of Tomorrow – How HR is Taking the Lead in Shaping the Future of Work, with Koljit Singh (Ajit), Senior Manager (HRM Excellence & IR), BASF Petronas Chemicals, and Chella Pitchai, AVP & Talent, Learning and Organisational Transformation, Biocon Biologics.

They will highlight why the evolving role of HR involves embracing change, and how HR can ensure that their organisation is spot-on with their culture that will last them through the rapidly changing world of work.

From distributed working models to employee engagement, skills gaps to pay parity, talent shortages to brand new, undefined skills that are yet to be scoped, the role of HR has never been more important, said John Antos, Vice-President Strategy, Global Payroll & Asia Pacific, ADP.

Join Antos at his session titled, Beyond Recovery: The Bridge to Growth, where he will present the latest workforce and recovery trends, as well as the top considerations and strategies for building a future-proof and agile workforce strategy.

Throughout the pandemic, CHROs have had to play key roles in ensuring health and mental wellbeing of employees, as well as organising remote work and the return to the office for some employees.

To gain in-depth analysis into how HR leaders can successfully fill a growing number of roles and deliver value to stakeholders as their organisations plan for the future, join Simon Benjamin, Assistant Honourable General Secretary, Malaysia Institute of Human Resource Management (MIHRM) at CHRO Malaysia.

He will moderate a panel discussion titled, The CHRO of the Future: Time to Look at HR Through a New Lens, which will explain why CHROs need to be more involved in human capital strategy and the overall business, the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation for the workforce, and how HR’s influence on organisational decision-making can be further expanded and cemented.

Benjamin will be joined by Nadiah Tan Abdullah, CHRO, SP Setia and Fong Tuan Chen, Chief People Officer, Berjaya Corporate Berhad.
